Spectacle lens technology company IOT has opened an office in Minneapolis to accommodate its growing presence in the U.S. optical industry. The space will house sales and marketing staff initially, with room for additional employees as needed, the company said in a statement. The office will serve as a gathering place for IOT events and education and as a hub for broader optical meetings and training opportunities.
“We envision our office as a regional center for sharing industry information and innovation,” said Tina Lahti, vice president of sales and marketing at IOT, shown here at the Minneapolis office.
